5 Health Benefits of Essential Oils

I love the essential fragrance types of Dolce & Gabbana, Usher, SeanJohn, Coco Channel, Jamaican Fruit, Blue Nile, Cherry, Island Butter, Sandlewood, Peppermint, Lavender the list is endless; but what about the other pleasure properties, specifically health benefits of essential oils?
I am aware of a good 20, this first blog will concentrate on the first 5 with more to come. You thought boutique fragrances were the only attribute of essential oils? Well the aroma of essential oils trigger both psychological and physiological responses. Not to be too technical but the fragrances are known to lift moods, and aid in fighting mild or moderate depression. I am not a pill person. My first inclination is to search for a natural remedy to put me back into balance. Oils such as lavender, bergamot, rose, and jasmine aid in the effect on the psyche. 

The flu and cold season is always distressing to me as just being in a crowd of people, shaking hands, puts you at risk of catching it, along with your immune system being without extra support. Benefit 2, essential oils constituents imitate human immunoglobulin(the protein police of the body that pummels anything not on the invited guest list as host friendly). The oils may elevate level of the blood cells that fight infection in your body and stimulate the immune system. These oils are German Chamomile, clove, mountain savory, and lemon. 

Remember I shared with you I am a germophobe? (don't tell anyone)Research indicates in benefit 3 that essential oils are highly effective against bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi. Even showing effectiveness of against superbug MRSA, a bacteria that has changed so much it is resistant to most antibiotic thus the name methicillin resistant staph aureus. The oils tea tree, geranium, clove, Melissa, eucalyptus, and rosemary carry properties to supply antimicrobial (antibug)effects. 

Benefit 4 is pain relief, ever have a pain in the neck? Well if it's a muscle that is tired and sore, that one the essential oils can aid in resolving the others, well research has not solved that one. Back to our topic by gently massaging into sore and tired muscles or made into a compress and applied with heat, enhances the production of the body natural pain killers "endorphins"and activate the brains ability to alleviate pain. These oils are balsam, fir, black pepper, ginger, lavender and wintergreen. 

Benefit 5 inflammatory property of essential oils. Chronic diseases are linked to inflammation as the cause. The culprits being bacteria infection, diet, injuries, reactions to chemicals and hormonal imbalances. The anti-inflammatory properties of German Chamomile, Fennel, Balsam, Fir, Peppermint, Thyme and many more. 

It is amazing how natural remedies can aid in making daily life better. As a personal favorite in the summer months I use peppermint soaps for a coolness all day, including shampoo. Thank you for reading our blog. Please share with us your natural remedies by posting a comment to this blog.

One more thing. I think that there are many travel insurance internet sites of respected companies that let you enter a trip details and find you the rates. You can also purchase an international travel cover policy on internet by using your credit card. All that you should do will be to enter your travel information and you can begin to see the plans side-by-side. Just find the plan that suits your allowance and needs after which it use your bank credit card to buy the idea. Travel insurance on the web is a good way to start looking for a reliable company to get international holiday insurance. Thanks for giving your ideas.
